Dear Nick, ‘Please Stop’ Him ‘Before Someone Else is Abused’Tape Proves Downing Street Received Hancock Warning in ’11

The heartbreaking pleas from a vulnerable young woman to Nick Clegg have been revealed. As reported in this morning’s Sun, the Deputy Prime Minister cruelly ignored a letter from “Annie”, sent under her real name, as she begged three years ago to “please stop” MP Mike Hancock “before it is too late before someone else gets hurt and abused by him.” 

The Portsmouth South constituent, who is accusing her MP of abusing her after she went to him for help, sent Clegg this chilling warning in March 2011:

“He cannot be trusted and he is a liability to women, public and also your party. Stop the behaviour from him and his staff and whoever is involved with Mr Hancock as this is holy wrong. And please reply to this letter as it is very important to me that I get answers from you”

Nick Clegg said on Friday that he was “appalled” when he “first heard specific allegations” at the beginning of 2013 and that he had “acted immediately” to suspend Hancock as MP. He said “some letters were sent and some were not received.” This one was.

Guido can now reveal that “Annie’s” damning letter definitely reached the Deputy Prime Minister’s office in Downing Street. A secret tape recording has emerged proving that No. 10 civil servants had received the letter and told “Annie” and it would be specifically passed on to Clegg’s Political Office. Guido is not running the full tape in order to protect “Annie’s” identity, but the extract below proves the Downing Street communications office, having checked “Annie’s” postcode, were clearly aware of the content of the letter and had passed it on to Clegg’s people:

No.10: Ok, this is a complaint regarding your MP Mike Hancock… 

Annie: Yes

No.10: Because this is a political issue it is being passed to the political section to deal with rather than us at the communication office because we are civil servants we are not really able to comment on matters like this. So what I can do is get in touch with the Political Office and say that you have called up inquiring about your letter.

Nick Clegg’s Political Office never replied to “Annie”, ignoring her warning “before it is too late before someone else gets hurt and abused by him.” Shame on them.

No prizes for guessing who Andrea Leadsom is talking about:

“As you said last week, Mr Speaker, we have a responsibility to safeguard the rights of this House and as Leader of the House I seek to do exactly that, treating all members of parliament with courtesy and respect. I hope and expect all Honourable and Right Honourable members to do likewise.”
